Love Island Fans Are Just Finding Out Liam Llewellyn Has A Famous Dad

Love Island Fans Are Just Finding Out Liam Llewellyn Has A Famous Dad

Welsh rugby fans will recognise Liam's dad!

It turns out Gemma Owen isn't the only Love Island contestant this year with a famous dad in sports.

Her former match Liam Llewellyn's father, David Llewellyn, is actually a former rugby player.

David once played for Welsh rugby clubs Ebbw Vale, Newport and Neath.

He made four appearances for the national team and was part of the Wales squad for the 1999 World Cup, during which he scored a try.

The former rugby star now works as a personal trainer in Cardiff and is training rising boxing star Joe Cordina, who was crowned the iBF super featherweight earlier this month.

David has a been a huge supporter of his son going into the villa and has flooded his own Instagram page with Love Island promo pictures of Liam.

After the 22-year-old was confirmed as being part of the starting lineup for the 2022 series, David posted on Instagram: “My boy. So proud of you son.. love you. Go nail it!!”

How adorable!

The strength and conditioning masters student said prior to entering the villa that his mum would probably describe him as ‘a little s**t’ but he insists: “I’m a good kid, she knows that."

He added: “I wear my heart on my sleeve, I can’t hide how I feel about anyone. I’m probably quite emotional as well, come to think about it.”

The public chose to couple Liam with Gemma Owen, however it seems the pair were not meant to be, with bombshell Davide Sanclimenti deciding to couple up with the 19-year-old.

Liam was coupled up with Gemma.

With two new bombshells heading into the villa tonight, fans are hoping Liam – who is now vulnerable because he's no longer in a couple – will find his match.

If given one chance to impress someone, Liam said he would 'pay them a compliment! The thing that girls quite like is that I’m not just like, ‘You’re mint.’ I’m like, ‘Your eyes are piercing, I’m lost in your eyes'.

"Or I’ll say something like, ‘You’ve got nice feet’ or something."

Love Island airs weekdays at 9pm on ITV2.
